statements, prime minister netanyahu and president obama are literally on the same page regarding iran. both now believe that there is time on the clock to try to resolve this diplomatically. once he left israel, obviously, he announced some additional assistance to jordan which is shouldering the most significant burden in terms of syrian refugees. i think there, it's probably most important is what he heard from prime minister netanyahu, and king abdullah, and whether that sense of urgency enables him to consider a wider range of actions going forward. he's been very cautious about syria over the past two years. >> martin, earlier this week on our air you were characterizing the palestinians' reaction to the president as spanning from perhaps indifference to outright hostility. this trip, does this change this and allow for more goodwill on that front? >> not really, no. i wouldn't say so, alex. if anything there's probably more anger. there was a sense that obama was going so strongly out of his way to get the israelis on his side, to show them how much he respected and 1i78 pathized with

the vote in 2008. the same state that gave barack obama a majority passed this. they say yes it is constitutional. we need to make a distinction between marriage between traditional couples, because those produce children and it's important to make the distinction for that reason only. the opponents of prop 8 who have prevailed in both the lower courts say, allowing same-sex couples to get married doesn't do anything to traditional couples, it doesn't weaken marriage, it doesn't affect their marriage at all. it's more inclusive and there's no good reason not to do it. slightly different arguments on wednesday in the defense of marriage case, the federal law passed 17 years ago that says the federal government won't recognize any same-sex marriages even in the states where it's legal. the federal government says it has to have its own definition of marriage. the opponents say that doesn't make any sense constitutionally, either. >> prop 8, about the right to get married. d.o.m.a. about federal benefits when married. >> exactly. >> interrelated, but not the same issue. >> yes, becaus
